Is The 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Better Than The 2018 Shelby GT350R?

Comparing the 2018 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R to the new 2023 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Z06 seems unjust. While both are revered high-performance icons meant for the track, the GT350R doesn’t directly compete with the C8 Z06.

The C8 Z06, featuring a fresh design, wields an impressive 670 horsepower from its naturally aspirated 5.5-liter V8 engine. This track-oriented beast acts as a bridge between the street-focused Corvette base model and the C8.R built for intense racing.

On the other hand, the 2018 Shelby GT350R generates 526 horsepower from its 5.2-liter V8 powertrain. The GT350R stands out as a versatile driver’s car, striking a harmonious balance with its power output, offering an enjoyable driving experience on winding backroads or challenging road courses.

To see how the GT350R stacks up against the more powerful and track-focused C8 Z06, check out EddieX’s video for a comprehensive comparison between these two remarkable machines!
